Too Much Choice causes anxiety?

 Too much choice causes anxiety.  That is the premise of  Professor Salecl.
What about marketing today – are we confusing people with too many choices?
Are customers bombarded by too many media streams? 

Just something to think about as we try to promote our platforms.  Personally I believe it is all about freedom of choice.  When society doesn’t want something, it will wither away.  I do not believe we are doomed to choices solely influenced by others.  What do you think?
